PHOTO NEWS: BARMM-funded 2-storey municipal hall soon to rise in Pandag, Maguindanao
BARMM, Philippines — Officials of LGU-Pandag, led by Mayor Zihan Mamalinta-Mangudadatu, are all in praises to the Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG) of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) for realizing their long-time dream, that is to have a new municipal hall building.
Mayor Mangudadatu and all the officials of LGU-Pandag are reportedly “grateful” to the MILG-BARMM for including their town to its “local government facilities development program” and for extending support to the LGUs infrastructure development projects.
LGU-Pandag has reportedly no municipal hall for the “longest time.”
Last month, Mayor Mangudadatu had signed an agreement with the MILG-BARMM for the construction of Pandag’s 2-storey municipal hall building.4
The signing ceremony was witnessed by BARMM’s Executive Secretary Abdulraouf Macacua, Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Member of Parliament Khadafeh “Toy” Mangudadatu, BARMM-MILG Minister Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo and other regional officials.
BTA Member of Parliament Toy Mangudadatu is the husband of Pandag Mayor Zihan M. Mangudadatu.
That moment, mayors of four other towns in Lanao Del Sur province also signed “memoranda of agreements” with BARMM officials for the construction of their new municipal halls also. (RASHID RH. BAJO)
